”The FCC proposed setting $5 million as the minimum the auction must raise for the sale to be completed. Cingular Wireless, the biggest U.S. wireless carrier, declined to comment on whether it would bid.”
Another interesting note, this also brought the FCC to debate allowing customers to use their cell phones while in flight. Typically, cell phones must be powered off the entire flight. On a 6 hour flight, that can sometimes be frustrating. Interesting stuff.
